This sports journalist by the name of Steve Burton from WBZ in Boston didn’t quite realise what he was in for when he was handed a live baby alligator while on air.
In the vision, which will go down as another winning moment in live TV bloopers, you can see the alligator starting to squirm and wrestle with the presenter’s grip.
The awkwardness of the presenter trying to contain the situation followed, with one of the handlers saying repeatedly, “Hold him tight, hold him tight,” to which the TV presenter replied “I am. I am. I am. I am. I am,” before he was finally saved.
Watch this hilarious moment above!
